Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman admitted to consuming “Spice” prior to his crash in October, according to recently released reports from the Bellevue Police Department.

According to the police report, Coleman admitted to consuming “Spice” at 5 p.m. which was about one hour and 20 minutes before the crash. He claimed that he didn’t remember the collision but stated he looked for the other car prior to leaving and couldn’t see it.

A search of Coleman’s vehicle located lighter, a glass spoon with tarry residue, an opened bag of Synthetic Cannaboid and three unopened bags of Synthetic Cannbinoids.

Police said a blood analysis was negative for Synthetic Cannbinoids.

Q13 says the recommended charges will be a felony, but the ultimate decision lies with the King County Prosecutors Office. The office is expected to get the case for review today, and a charging decision could take a week or more, according to Q13.

Q13 reports that police will recommend charges against Coleman for his involvement in a crash in October.

KIRO Radio’s Josh Kerns said the Bellevue PD will not comment until press conference tomorrow. He says the King County Prosecutors office is reviewing the report and will make a recommendation at an undetermined time.

Earlier this month, the Bellevue Police Department said they were waiting on a second toxicology report before making a recommendation on charges.

The Seahawks were eliminated from the postseason eight days ago. Coleman is a restricted free agent.
